Senator’s wife faces deportation.

Sen. Curt Thompson of Norcross received quite a shock this week when ICE officers knocked on his door looking for his wife (a native of Columbia). She was not home and has not been taken into custody:

He and his wife “hope to have this situation quickly resolved with the immigration authorities,” Thompson said in a written statement Wednesday evening.

In the statement, Thompson said his wife is the victim of a “notario.” In some Latin American countries a “notario” is an esteemed lawyer; in the U.S. it translates into notary public. Some U.S. “notarios” misrepresent themselves as lawyers and often file incomplete and improper immigration applications for unsuspecting clients.

    LOL

    Several weeks before the election, I was invited to speak to a non-partisan group on behalf of Sonny and Thompson was to speak for Taylor. He mentioned several times that he had supported Cox and gave rather lukewarm support for the Big Guy. Imagine what would have happened to Curt if Taylor had one?

    Is it a guess that Thompson is being punished by Taylor, or do y’all know something we don’t?

    If true, it’s despicable, I tell you. Does Mark Taylor wonder why he lost even bigger than John Kerry did in Georgia? I certainly don’t.

    Is this what “irony” means?

    The “notarios” that Senator Thompson is blaming here are addressed in Senator Chip Rogers’ “Georgia Security and Immigration Compliance Act” [ the law is agin ’em]…Thompson was very vocal in his opposition of the strongest state law aimed at illegal immigration and employment in the nation.

    We think the name of Rogers’ law says a lot…so does Thompson’s response to the pickle his wife is in.

    Umm…why wasn’t his wife taken into custody anyway?

    ColinATL,

    I think ugadog was joking. Thompson wrote an article recently criticizing the Democrat’s nominees, including Taylor.

    D.A. King,

    I think the reason the wife wasn’t taken into custody was because she wasn’t at home when ICE arrived.

  5. ugadog says:

    It doesn’t really matter. Thompson won’t be a State Senator after the next election cycle anyways.

    Good point…but like all of us, she will return home sometime?
